Motorola has launched its super affordable Moto C phones in India. The Moto C series is actually the cheapest smartphone being offered by the company at the moment. The Moto E and Moto G series were once the cheapest offered by Lenovo and Motorola but that changed earlier this year with the announcement of the new series.
The Moto C, which was unveiled last month, will be available in 100 stores across India on Friday. Sudhin Mathur, Motorola India Managing Director, explained that this is a huge opportunity for a brand like Motorola to initiate the move to smartphones for feature phone users.
The Moto C doesn’t have the greatest specs when compared to other phones by the company but does have a price that should attract many buyers. The Moto C series is now the most affordable phone by the company. Before the Moto C, the Moto E was the most affordable device by the company. The Moto C is priced at Rs 5,999 ($94) while the Moto E costs around $25 more. The Moto E and Moto G series are currently some of the most popular Motorola smartphones in India.
A number of companies have released affordable smartphones in India but the Moto C series could be a hot seller as the phone costs less than $100. Here are the specs for the Moto C:
- 5-inch display.
- 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. There is also a second variant with 16GB of storage.
- 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera.
- 2,350mAh battery.
- Android 7.0 Nougat.
In 2017, the company has released the Moto G5 and announced the Moto C and Moto Z2 Play. The Moto G5 and Moto Z2 are pricier but the Moto C should be a good option for those who want to spend less than $100 on a smartphone. The company is also rumored to be working on a new Moto E, which was recently spotted in a leaked presentation.
